The Health Insurance Accountability and Portability Act, commonly known as HIPAA, is a complex set of regulations concerning medical information privacy and security, as well as the standardization of transaction code sets. Healthcare providers and other covered entities that transmit protected health information (PHI) or electronic protected health information (ePHI) must comply with comprehensive HIPAA security rules to ensure patient privacy and data confidentiality.
As cyberattacks increase in frequency and sophistication, the need to protect sensitive and personal data is becoming more critical than ever. Medical organizations and healthcare providers must remain vigilant, continuously monitoring their networks to ensure no malware is lurking behind the scenes. Many are turning to Tenable, both to reduce exposure and loss by detecting cyberattackers, as well as to help ensure HIPAA compliance by automating compliance audits and reporting.
